Nebraska unemployment rate remains unchanged for January

Nebraska unemployment rate remains unchanged for January

Alabama's unemployment rate rose to 6.4 percent despite improvement nationally, leaving the state with the third-worst jobless rate in the United States, according to reports released Monday.

Employers boosted Colorado's non-farm payroll by 7,900 in January from December, with the private sector adding 4,200 jobs and the public sector adding 3,700.

Three New England states had better unemployment rates than Maine's - 2.7 percent in New Hampshire, 3.1 percent in Vermont and 3.2 percent in MA - while two others were worse, 4.7 percent in Rhode Island and 4.5 percent in CT.

One private industry showing the most growth was services, which includes fix and maintenance; personal and laundry services; and religious, grantmaking, civic and professional organizations.

Young Sheldon: Jon Favreau to Direct CBS Spinoff Pilot
Instead, it will be shot with a single-camera style akin to that of Malcolm in the Middle - only with a younger Sheldon as a lead. Actor and prolific filmmaker Jon Favreau will direct the series' pilot, but he will not have an on-screen role.

Collier's rate: 5 percent in January, 4.5 percent in December and 4.7 percent a year ago. Out of a regional labor force of 596,958, there were 31,059 unemployed residents. Lincoln's preliminary rate was 3.1 percent. "After revising data from previous years, the new series reflects a small but steady decrease in unemployment each month since March 2011", said BLS Program Operations Manager Susan Price. The number of unemployed, defined as those who had actively sought a job in the past month, fell by 1,600 from December on a seasonally-adjusted basis and is down by 12,200 over the past year. Jobs in professional and business services increased 2,700. "New Jersey is outperforming the nation in 2016 in job growth and outperforming the nation in terms of unemployment rate as well". Growth in nondurable goods (+3,400) offset the losses in durable goods (-1,300), due in part to reported hiring in food manufacturing.

At 7.7 percent, Lawrence County had the highest area unemployment rate in January, up from 6.8 percent in December and down slightly from the January 2016 rate of 7.8 percent.

State officials report another drop in unemployment for Arkansas.
